Day visit to The Ashmolean Museum Broadway and Sezincote House
Visit | Ashmolean Museum Broadway
Wednesday 4 May 2016 - 10:15 until 17:00
The Ashmolean Museum Broadway opened in 2013, based at Tudor House in the main high street, with beautifully set out rooms displaying furniture, pictures, tapestries and ceramics. The morning visit will include an introductory talk and viewing of the museum and the exhibition on the artist, travel writer and author of much-loved nonsense verse, Edward Lear.
In the afternoon the group will make a private visit, with guided tours, of Sezincote House. Designed by Samuel Cockerell in the style of a Mogul palace, with an onion dome straight out of India, Sezincote made such an impression on the Prince Regent that it became a model for Brighton Pavilion. Set in a landscape by Humphry Repton, the extensive gardens, temples, grottoes, waterfalls and canals will also be open.
Own transport and lunch arrangements.
This event has been organised by the Worcestershire Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
